Hundreds attend the impressive rites." Sherrill speaks; (2) March of Dimes - "America falls in stel with the march of Dimes! In Washington, the First Lady and Margaret Truman officially open the drive by placing theirs, and the President's contribution, in the Missouri bottle. In New York, mayor O'Dwyer opens the nation-wide drive to aid infantile victims. Little Nancy Drury is the campaign's 'Dimes' girl." (3) "Skokie IL: After police have rounded up confiscated pin-ball and slot machines, they toss the devices onto a junk pile and set the business on fire with gasoline. The flames 'hit the jackpot'!"

'Chessie Theatre,' inaugurates its regular motion picture program with a premier of the new Universal-International hit 'Swell Guy.' (5) "Colorado: Flying in a special ski-shod plane, two daring hunters take the 'high' road to coyote-hunting, zooming down on the marauding critters to blast them with shotguns. It's thrilling and dangerous." (6) Indochina - "Saigon: In these scenic pictures from Indochina, where Vietnam forces are battling French troops, France's Overseas Minister Moutet arrives by air to speed his nation's defense of its Far Eastern possession." (complete newsreel).
